October 1st, 2010 marks the beginning of dynafit dynamic fitness. Over the past 8 years, we’ve accomplished more than we ever dreamt and barriers are being broken each and every day. We’ve seen so many amazing staff and customers come through our front doors. We don’t call this a dynafit family for nothing; we’ve laughed and celebrated happy times together, but we’ve also cried and felt the struggles like they were our own. We wouldn’t be where we are without the constant support of our members and this amazing community. Going forward, we will be known as dynafit University. We’ll talk about our name change a little later on - stay tuned.
So, lets take a look at some of our accomplishments. Get settled with some popcorn in a comfy chair, because this is going to be a long one…
We can’t even tell you the amount of weight and inches that have been lost by our members over the years (mostly because we can’t count that high) but seeing the transformations have been MINDBLOWING.
And we’re not just talking about physical transformations; the mental shifts that we’ve witnessed have had more of an impact than anything else. We’ve seen members that used to drag themselves through the doors, heads down, now walk in with their chin up, smiling ear to ear. We’ve seen members change from “I could never do that” to “I’m gonna do that today”. We wouldn’t be where we are without our members, so from the bottom of our hearts, thank you all for being effing awesome!
Programming and Events
Name another fitness facility that offers over 7 classes a day, we’ll wait… But for real. Over the years, we’ve listened to what our members want and made a group class schedule that reflects those wants and needs. Through trial and error, we’ve finally got it figured out… we like to think at least.
Our team challenges have also completely taken off. We love seeing our members crushing these challenges and making connections that will last them a lifetime.

We’ve seen so many amazing staff members come and go over the years, each one leaving their mark in one way or another. Our team has celebrated life’s successes together, and also cried and comforted one another during the hardest times. We couldn’t be luckier to have the team that we do, and we are constantly growing, changing and enjoying this crazy ride together.
Our success can certainly be attributed to our community, so over the years we’ve wanted to give back. Here’s just a few things that we’ve taken part in to help and support:
Kurzy’s fundraisers - #6 taking place in March 2019. After this next fundraiser, we will be over $100,000 raised!
North Perth Fire Combat team – we’ve watched them take home medals and trophies, year after year, and we’re so grateful to be apart of it. Thanks for all that you guys do!
Sponsor hospital gala and ladies night
It’s extremely humbling to see how our membership numbers have increased over the years. But one thing that has never increased are our rates. Members still pay the same they did 8 years ago and we are very proud of that. We’ve also added in many different membership options, so there’s something for everyone. To list just a few:
All-inclusive membership – full 24/7 use of the facility AND unlimited group classes
Couple and family memberships
Various payment plans and options
We’ve partnered with LDSS to offer a free gym membership to grade 9 students. The sooner we can get young people into our facility, the better. We want to encourage healthy lifestyles at a young age and help as many students as possible reach their full potential.
Through the gym, we’ve been able to grow (and are continuing to grow) our other organizations. We feel so humbled every time we see someone walk into the gym in a Naughti Yogi shirt, or see someone wearing a Listowel Legionnaires hat. Giving back to the community we love is one of our company’s mandates, so when the opportunity arose to take over the historic baseball club, we jumped in with both feet. We started Naughti Yogi as a way to express ourselves both inside of the gym and out. We are excited to launch our website shortly and we feel very excited about where this brand is going, and so proud that it calls Listowel home.
We’ve searched the market high and low to find our members the absolute BEST products and supplements. We have options for every budget, and we believe in what we are selling. These are products that our trainers and staff use every day, and we want the highest quality for our members. So you can guarantee that when you buy our products, they are all dynafit University faculty approved!
As of October 1st, 2018, dynafit will officially be known as dynafit University LTD. We feel that we are so much more than just a fitness facility, and we want all of our members to feel that when they walk in our doors. In our day to day operations, we constantly get asked referrals for contractors, painters, plumbers, etc. and we are fortunate enough to work hand in hand with so many amazing businesses in our community. Through these day to day dealings, we often get asked for life advice that goes outside of personal health and fitness. Through our many mistakes that we’ve made in life, we’re able to help people troubleshoot current elements of their lives, and there is no more rewarding factor than seeing someone turn around, or further, their health and fitness and then compliment that with life successes outside of the gym.
So here’s to another 8+ years of crushing goals, reaching new heights and taking this community to the next level. Thanks to all of you for always believing in us and helping us every step of the way!
